Maha and her husband Sherif are set designers working for the first time on a purely commercial film. Overworked and frustrated by the low artistic standards, Maha is exceedingly stressed by the experience. One day on set, Maha hurriedly adjusts a prop between takes only to turn around and find that the entire film crew has disappeared. The film set is now a real apartment, and Maha’s outfit has inexplicably changed. Torn between worlds, and unable to control either life, Maha reaches a breaking point. For the first time ever, she’s forced to decide what she truly desires. Shot in black and white with numerous visual, aural, and narrative elements, Decor draws upon a rich tradition of Egyptian black-and-white cinema that rivaled Hollywood in its heyday, and which remains a vibrant component of popular Egyptian culture to this day.
